Design and Development of Experimental Hardware in Loop Model for the Study of Vibration Induced in Tall Structure with Active Control


Background/Objectives: This paper focuses on the active control of vibration in tall structure prone to high winds and earthquakes using the active mass dampers. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The prototype model was fabricated to measure the response of external forces and control methods have been implemented to minimize the damping. Modeling of servomotor and tall structure was studied theoretically and experimentally in view of controlling the angular velocity and position of the servomotor while displacement for the tall structure. Findings: PID controller was implemented on the structure for effective damping of the vibration which was easy in computation and cost effective. Application/ Improvements: The proposed study is very useful for practical implementations in small scale industries.
Keywords: Active Control, Active Mass Dampers, Structure Vibration
